What does CNN in CNN Spurs stand for?

The acronym “CNN” in the team name stands for Crows Nest North. Crows Nest North road is the halfway point between Gibbons and Bon Accord. CNN minor hockey teams are made up of families from both communities, which makes the CNN family larger than your average rural minor hockey association. Kids from both Gibbons and Bon Accord are proud to play for the CNN Spurs; Go Spurs Go.

CNN’s Philosophy

CNN creates a holistic learning environment for all players, parents, and coaches. Giving players a safe and fun learning experience is our number one priority. We are committed to developing strong hockey players on the ice and well-rounded individuals off the ice.

What can you expect from CNN and what do they have to offer?

CNN is a rural minor hockey association, with big benefits. Having two arenas gives us the ability to give teams more ice time, usually 3+ hours a week! We offer reasonable hockey fees, which include hockey development classes (power skating, shooting camps, goalie camps, etc).

Minor hockey in Gibbons and Bon Accord starts with registration in June, then usually around the 3rd week in September with evaluations and team selection.  Practices begin immediately after teams are set.  The hockey season usually ends with playoffs wrapping up around middle of March.
